I have so much music, so many albums I’ve been meaning to listen, so many subgenres to get into, so many artists to check out – I’m changing the way I set up my collection on my computer (my usual listening station). I try to listen to one album per day, that’s all I have time for. If I like it, it may play for several days. Therefore, I’m trying to dumb down my search parameters. Nine Artists, 18 albums, 8 weeks. In addition, there will be three featured styles.
Here’s a list of the Featured Styles I’ll be digging on for the next 60
Buddy Miles, Jazz Q, Maneige, Michael FranksMiroslav Vitous, NRBQ, Phil Upchurch, PFM, and Sparks. I’m especially grooving on Jazz Q today, lately though Maneige and Michael Franks have really sparked my ears. I feel I need to become familiar with Miles’ catalog, although I feel I may be disappointed overall. NRBQ and Sparks deserve attention from me after having sat in my collection for 8 years since being listened. Phil Upchurch is an artist I’ve wanted to single out as well, and PFM is prog rocks greatest Italian band. Fluency with their catalog is a must.
